Flip (formerly Flipgrid) is a social learning platform that allows educators to pose a prompt that allows students  to respond in a video format. When used purposefully, Flip is an engaging way for teachers to foster discussion and collaboration in a space that feels like the best parts of social media discussion without the free-for-all feeling of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Tik Tok. Students can respond via the Flip app or website with any camera-enabled device or by uploading a previously recorded video. Responses can be 15 seconds to five minutes, and a maximum recording time can be set by the instructor. Teachers can also allow students to record replies to classmates' responses.  --- (Common Sense Education)
